Lush Haul!

Right before Halloween I ordered things from Lush. I think you can still get these things on the website. As I'm writing this, they are still available.


1. Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar: My stem broke in the mail. But it is still pretty. It has orange glitter all over it. That would be cool if it smelled like pumpkin spice, but it doesn't. It still smells good. I can smell the grapefruit and lime.

This is what the website said about it: "Perfect for long, lingering soaks. At the end of a long day, pop this Sparkly Pumpkin into the bath. As you crumble its golden shimmeryness under running water, you'll feel instantly re-energized. An uplifting blend of juniper berry, grapefruit and lime oils will fill the room with an enticing, cocktail-like punch. And as you sink deep under the glittering gold water you won't be able to keep from smiling - probably because this little pumpkin is made to make every day bright. This pumpkin shares its scent with our Mr. Punch soap from LUSH Christmases past!"

On the Lush website there was an article called "The Mysterious World of Herbs" http://www.lushusa.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-Lush-Site/en_US/Blog-Posts?cid=blog_herbs-superstitions
This is what it said regarding the Sparkly Pumpkin: Juniper berry has long been considered a cleansing material, and has been used since medieval times to ward off witches and fairies. If you plant a juniper tree by your door, witches will have to steer clear...unless they can guess the exact number of needles on the tree (and now we are hoping that no witches near you are good at quick math.) Juniper berry oil is indeed detoxifying for other reasons, so reach for a Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar if you need a reviving boost!

I read in the comments section that you can cut this in half for plenty of bubbles.

My Review: The water turns orange with golden glitter everywhere. There are so many bubbles. It's insane! If you want a bath with lots of bubbles and sweet, citrus smell, this is the bath for you.


2. Wizard Bubble Bar: I don't recognize the smells on this. It smells spicy. It is so cute! It has little silver stars all over it's back. 

This is what the website said about it: "Banish stress with a crumble. As the weather casts a cold, frosty spell over us, there's only one thing better than soaking in the bath: the Wizard. This magical, handmade companion will help keep your spirits bright even on the darkest days. Energizing tangerine, juniper berry and fennel essential oils help balance the skin, while its warming and uplifting scent banishes stress and helps you recover from the day. It's pure magic for your mind, body and soul. If you loved our Jingle Spells Bath Bomb, the wizard has the same mystical perfume."

"The Mysterious World of Herbs" http://www.lushusa.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-Lush-Site/en_US/Blog-Posts?cid=blog_herbs-superstitions talks about the Wizard. "Stuffing dried or fresh fennel in a keyhole and hanging it around the house was thought to banish pesky ghosts. Growing fennel in your garden supposedly keeps negativity and sluggishness at bay. Fennel oil certainly is uplifting, and we use it in our Wizard Bubble Bar for its fresh, licorice-like fragrance!"

In another article on the Lush website, "Bathtime Spells: The Power of Natural Ingredients" http://www.lushusa.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-Lush-Site/en_US/Blog-Posts?cid=blog_bathtime-spells it also talks about the Wizard. "Juniperberry oil is magical in every sense of the word. Commonly known for its association with gin, juniper berry oil has been used for many years in Tibetan incense to ward off evil spirits. When it's not being used to guard off evil, juniper berry oil's positive effects for the skin and mind seem endless. Its cleansing qualities are wonderful for clarifying, leaving congested skin feeling and looking vibrant. Its woody, clean aroma and mystical history have been summoned into Wizard Bubble Bar's perfume to create a magical bath time experience. When crumbled and stirred into the tub, Wizard Bubble Bar casts a shimmery spell to leave you feeling awakened, clarified, and seeing clearly."

My Review: This smells really strong, like pinecones. This little guy makes so many bubbles! I probably could have cut this in half for two baths. The water is purple with silver glitter. Lush bubble bars are really good at making bubbles. The bubbles last a long time. The scent of this bath reminds me of Christmas. I wonder if they are going to keep this one out for the Christmastime. When you first smell the wizard before you put it in the bath, it smells very strong, but once it is in the water the scent isn't as strong. It's not like the Lord of Misrule. I would recommend this.



3. Ceridwen's Cauldron: I heard about this on Youtube from Elle Fowler's Lush haul. She gets this one with the other Halloween goodies because it goes with the theme being a cauldron and all. It used to say on the website the spell that this was based on. She says what it is in one of her videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVOf7MudrqM. "According to the spell this was based off of, if you make a wish and spit 3 times into the water, your wish will come true." This is in the permanent collection and is available all year.

This is what the website said: "Magical, relaxing bath melt for softer skin. Slip into our enchanting potion of oats, lavender and sandalwood to calm and soothe your irritated, sensitive skin. If you're wishing for relief, we can guarantee that this bath melt will make your skin dreams come true. Rich, nutritious cocoa butter and walnut oil melt into the bath water to quench and soften your dehydrated skin, frothing ever so slightly, leaving you with a muslin bag of oats to give your skin a soothing and gently scented scrub for instant relief from redness and itch."

My Review: I can smell the oats and lavender. I love the smell of lavender. It has a little bit of bubbles. The water is milky and smells like lavender. This is a very luxurious bath. It feels so good on the skin and smells good. This is my favorite Lush product I got so far!


4. Fairy Ring Soap: This is a piece of soap from a bigger soap that looks like this:


It's a fairy home! In the article "The Mysterious World of Herbs" it says this about the Fairy Ring Soap: "Mushroom folklore abounds in nearly every culture-the circular fungal growth pattern of mushrooms is even called a fairy ring! It is said that a house built near a fairy ring brings good luck, and that you can retrieve the treasure from (but only with the help of a fairy, there's always a catch!). Don't have a crop of mushrooms in your backyard? Never fear-perhaps you can bring fortune to your home with a slice of Fairy Ring Soap, made with nutritious shiitake mushrooms."

This is what the website says about it, "A magical scent to take you away. Who is the fairest one of all? Well, you will be after a bath or shower with our Fairy Ring Soap! Handmade with fresh mushrooms, this mystical sudser is rich in nutrients for beautiful skin. It's also scented with jasmine absolute, ylang ylang and vetivert oils to leave a bit of fairy dust fragrance behind. Plus, the soap base we use for this one is 100% palm-free, so you can feel good in or out of the shower! This Fairy Ring isn't going anywhere! It'll be with us right through 'til Christmas. This soap shares its delightful scent with Silky Underwear Dusting Powder, pair them together to smell gorgeous all day."

My Review: I don't think it smells like mushrooms. It is a scent I can't quite distinguish. It smells fresh to me. It makes my skin so clean!



5. Northern Lights Bath Bomb: This has little silver stars on the top. It's a different shape than the bath bombs normally are.

The article "Bathtime Spells: The Power of Natural Ingredients" says, "One such example is the powerful and persuasive jasmine absolute. Its heady, sexy aroma has a way of slinking its way into the mind, making one feel bold, confident, and sensual. Jasmine flowers smell their best after-hours, so this evening blooming floral is picked in the light of the moon, only adding to its magical allure. It's been used for hundreds of years in Hindu religious ceremonies and has been long praised as a potent aphrodisiac. Jasmine absolute is found in our Northern Lights Bath Bomb to create a sultry, calming bath, complete with magical stars that swirl around you in the water-perfect for an autumn love spell.

The website says: "A colorful display that pops. You won't need to go far to enjoy a spectacular display of lights in the night sky! Drop this Bath Bomb in the water and watch as it puts on a spectacular light show - as the ends crackle and fizz away, watch as the middle begins to slowly dissolve to reveal gorgeous blue and neon green colors, turning your bathwater into a calming jasmine and ylang ylang-scented swirling night sky scattered with little stars. If you loved our Christmas Eve Bubble Bar of Christmases past, you'll love this one! This bomb has Bubble Bar mix in the middle to help the colors release slowly and add a bit of bubble to your bath."

My Review: Before putting it into the bath I can smell the beautiful floral smell of the jasmine. First, a fuchsia color comes out. Then, blue and yellow come out. The bath bomb is gone very fast, despite how big it is. The water is a dark purple with light pink stars and clouds swirling around.


6. Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb: You can kind of see this has a little crown molded on top.

From "Bathtime Spells: The Power of Natural Ingredients" it says: If you're looking for a stimulating, awakening effect for the mind on a chilly night, turn to spicy black pepper oil. This essential oil is extracted from black pepper berries, which are commonly ground up to add spice to foods with its powerful taste. It's also been used by aromatherapists to aid tired muscles, fatigue, and to increase circulation in the body. You'll smell black pepper oil in Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb's perfume, where it's combined with patchouli oil and Fairtrade vanilla absolute to create a mischievous, captivating experience in the tub."

The website says: "Strange and magnificent. Inspired by the ruler of the Pagan Feast of Fools, Lord of Misrule brings mischievous revelry to the tub with a spicy herbal blend of patchouli and black pepper oil. As it slowly froths in the water, hypnotic swirling silver luster is released and the deep green exterior soon gives way to a rich, wine-colored center. Just like at the Feast of Fools, when the wine begins flowing, the revelry really begins! Popping candies fizz and crackle, creating a world of magic and mischief right before your eyes. The crown design on Lord of Misrule was inspired by the one worn by the ruler of the Pagan Feast of Fools, where a lowly peasant became Lord for a day. Although commonplace today, black pepper was incredibly expensive in Medieval Europe."

My Review: It smells like lemon to me. At first it is green with little specks of red. The scent is too strong for me. I wouldn't get this again. It looks like a volcano when the center is broken open and fuchsia bubbles start to come out. It turns the bath water from green to wine. And there is white clouds.


7. Sparkler Bath Bomb: This has the same strange shape as Northern Lights.

This is what the website says about it: "Rose Jam-scented fireworks! Pop, pop, fizz,fizz, oh what a spectacle this is! Sparkler was made to make bath time exciting as a night filled with fireworks. Handmade with popping candy, it'll crackle in an explosion of color, moving around the tub and turning your water into a fiery, shimmering display! It also features one of our most popular fragrances: Rose Jam! Its delicate and floral aroma will fill the room and leave your skin kissed with its beautiful scent. If you love this scent, you'll also love our Rose Jam Bubbleroon and Ro's Argan Body Conditioner."

Review: In the comments section I read that you can cut this in half and use it for two baths. It doesn't smell like rose to me. It smells a little bit like pie, which I don't like. This is when I just smell it before putting it in the water. In the water there is a floral scent to me, that isn't rose, but it smells good. So I have mixed feelings about this. It starts off being neon yellow. Then, orange comes out of it with gold glitter and little bubbles. I don't hear it crackle. The orange with gold glitter is very pretty. The the bath water is orange. Eventually, red is coming out. It leaves little specks of gold glitter on your skin. I think it looks pretty. I approve of this bath bomb.


8. Star Light, Star Bright Bath Melt: When you hold this the silver sparkles come off everywhere! 

The website says: "Bathe in a pool of starlight. Crush this shimmering star under running water and watch as your bath turns a deep, calming turquoise and the silvery luster spreads to create a magical, shimmering trail of starlight. Organic shea butter and extra virgin coconut oil leave your skin feeling oh-so-soft, while the zesty ginger, lavender and lime oil fragrance inspires imagination and positivity. Go ahead - make a wish upon this star!"

My Review: Before putting this in the bath it smells strongly of lime. The silver layer washes away. Underneath is a white buttery star with blue. The water isn't turquoise. It is light blue. There is white clouds. The silver sparkles are in the water too. The smell wakes you up.


9. Ice Blue Soap: Whenever I order from Lush they always send a free sample. 

This is what the website says about it: "Brisk and refreshing peppermint soap. Intense and extra stimulating; when you're in the shower rub Ice Blue all over your body for a refreshing, tingly feeling. Peppermint has an incredible quality of making you feel cool when you're hot, and warm when you're cold. So if you're hot and cold, it goes both ways! It also means that Ice Blue is the perfect soap for boys, girls, and all seasons and climes. Plus to really wake up your skin and your senses we've made our ice cube soap with refreshing citrus oils. Give yourself an extra special cleansing sensation with Ice Blue. Peppermint oil cools the skin and gives it a brisk deep clean. It also helps the skin be soft, and the mind focused. Bergamot and lemon citrus oils pair with tingly peppermint to give you an extra zesty wake up in the shower. Make your skin as smooth as ice when you exfoliate with the sea salt crystals in Ice Blue.

My Review: Peppermint also reminds me of the holiday season because of the candy canes. This strongly smells of peppermint. Its not the sweet candy cane scent. I wouldn't buy this.

October Favorites

Favorite TV Show


Chrisley Knows Best: This is on USA, E! and On Demand. It is a reality show about a family. The dad is really funny. I thought he was gay when I first watched the show, but he must not be gay if he has so many children and he seems like he is in love with his wife. He acts very flamboyant. And the children get into all kinds of mischief and so does the dad. I just think it is a really funny show.

Favorite Song

Fix My Eyes by For King & Country

Beauty Products


1. Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet: September I went to Sephora and asked for help picking out make up for oily skin, and the girl helping me suggested I might have dehydrated skin and that is why my skin is producing to many oils. She suggested this moisturizer that she uses and loves. She gave me a sample, and I really liked it so I ordered the full size. The tube isn't that big, but you don't need a lot of it to put on your face and I just put it on at night. I use a lotion with SPF in the morning.


2. Maybelline Color Show in Hibiscus Haven: This is more like a summer nail polish, but I wanted to paint my nails pink this month. This turned out to be a pretty color that I haven't worn before. 




3. Wet 'n Wild Rose to Fame: I found this on the Wet 'n Wild Halloween display. There were a bunch of new lipsticks, and I got really excited because these lipsticks are really good even though they are so inexpensive. This was my favorite of all the ones I got. It is a matte my lips but better color.



4. Jordana Easy Liner for Lips Retractable Pencil in Cabernet: This is a dark cranberry color that is good if you are wearing a dark lip. These kind of lips were very popular in October. I don't know if people are going to keep doing this dark lip trend. I don't know if I like it very much, but this lip pencil is really pretty nonetheless. Jordana products are like Wet 'n Wild. They are very inexpensive. You can find them at the beauty counter at Walgreens.




5. Revlon Colorstay Palette in Attitude: This is a pretty palette for the fall time. The two lighter colors didn't show up very well on my hand, but the upper right color is supposedly a dupe for Urban Decay's Naked 2 from The Basics Palette. The bottom left color is my dupe for Anastasia Amrezy's Morocco and Makeup Geek's Cocoa Bear. I really like that color. It is a reddish brown. And the darkest shade is a pigmented dark brown.




6. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil: This is supposed to be a dupe for NARS Laguna Bronzer. This is in 2 of the new Holiday palettes I got from Too Faced. I have never had it before, and I have heard so many people talk about it. It really does smell like chocolate! I is a nice, matte bronzer you can use to contour. I am careful with it because it might be a little too dark for my pale skin tone. 

I hope you enjoy my favorites and find it helpful. What was your favorite thing about October?

Makeup Looks for Fall


Today is the first day of Autumn so I decided to start wearing my fall looks. The weather doesn't seem like fall in Oregon. It is really hot. It feels like summer, but I'm going to pretend it is fall. It seems like this year the trend is a real dark lip, which I'm not really excited about. I don't know if I'm brave enough to wear it. I think I will find a way to tone it down. If you want to wear it darker, than just put more of the lipstick on, but I will put on a light layer of it.

She doesn't say what she has on the cheeks and the lips, but it is natural and doesn't compete with the eye look. I'm going to wear Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Nude Attitude and NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Natural. The blush I used is Revlon Naughty Nude.

p. Pumpkin & Poppy Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Ice Cream Assassin: skipped
My Thoughts: This is a really pretty look. I have been doing the winged eye liner using tape, and that makes it so much easier for me. Maybelline Caramel Infused is a really pretty lip color. It already is glossy, so I didn't put anything on top of it.

I hope you like these looks. There is more to come!

September Favorites

I only have one favorite this month! It has been something I have used everyday. Everything else I have used maybe once or twice the whole month, so I'm not going to count that as a favorite.




It is Cover FX Blotting Powder in Light. I went to Sephora on a mission to fix my oily skin. I don't know if I have oily skin or if it is sweat from the heat. The girl recommended this powder for me, but it was out of stock. So she gave me a code where I could get it off the website and get free shipping. They are always very nice to me at my Sephora. I know I can go there with my questions. This powder works so well! This is the best powder I have ever used! My skin doesn't stay matte however. I still have to powder my face during the day. But I really recommend this!

Favorite Songs

1. Mercy Me - Greater
2. Newsboys - We Believe
3. Big Daddy Weave - Overwhelmed
4. Jeremy Camp - Overcome

Favorite Movie


Maid in Manhattan: This is not a new movie, and I have seen it before. I watched it this month, and I really enjoyed it. It is about a maid who gets mistaken to be a guest at a fancy hotel, and a politician falls in love with her, but doesn't know her real identity. It is a cute romantic, comedy.

I hope you found this helpful! What was your favorite thing this month?

Pretty Makeup Looks


In between Back to School Looks and Fall Makeup Looks, I might find some time to do my "Pretty Makeup Looks" Series. These are the looks that don't fit into any category other then I like them and call them pretty. I use my own makeup to do the looks. I have too much makeup, so I don't need to go and run out and buy more makeup. You can do the looks too if you have a product similar to the makeup artist or my makeup. I also like doing these looks because I learn about applying makeup, and I think I express myself artistically. It is fun!

1. Get Ready with Me Day-to-Day! by beauty crush https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7W2LUgYWvgU
a. Face Primer
b. Foundation
c. Concealer
d. Powder
e. Cream Bronzer, under cheekbones, top of forehead, bottom of chin: Elf Contouring Cream Blush & Bronzer in St. Lucia
f. Brows
g. MAC Paint Pot in Indian Wood: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze
h. Black Liquid Liner, upper lash line, wing
i. Inglot Shimmery Nude, inner corner: Stila Kitten
j. Mascara
k. Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick, she doesn't say which one: Elf Contouring Cream Blush & Bronzer in St. Lucia
l. Charlotte Tilburry Lipstick in Hot Sienna: Maybelline Color Sensational in Coral Carnation
My Thoughts: I think this is a nice, everyday, wearable look. She uses a lot of cream products, which I have heard look more natural on the skin.

2. 3 Looks Using the Vegas Lights Palette by Makeup Geek https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVGMnbscfNQ

Look 1
a. MAC Painterly Paint Pot, lashes to brow: Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in Continuous Almond
b. Makeup Geek Vegas Lights Palette, Mirage, lid: Wet 'n Wild Fergie Centerstage Collection Photo OP Eyeshadow in Newport Nights, top left color
c. Roulette, outer v, slightly in the outer crease: Wet 'n Wild Knock on Wood, eyelid color
d. Desert Sands, slightly above Roulette and into the crease: Elf Beauty Clutch, 2nd row, 3rd color
e. Makeup Geek Eye Shadow in Vanilla Bean, under brow: 4th shade in Wet 'n Wild Lust Palette
f. Bada Bing, outer v, outer half of lower lash line: Wet 'n Wild Naked Truth, Definer shade
g. Casino, inner half of lower lash line: LA Colors Eye Shadows in Sunflower, left color
h. Black Gel Liner, use an eye pencil, tight line, outer half of waterline
i. Black Gel Liner, upper lash line, wing
j. Estee Lauder Lipstick #130 Intense Nude: Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Rosy Nude 065
My Thoughts: Makeup Geek has a unique way of doing eye shadow looks. It might help to watch the video as you are putting on the makeup. The eyes are neutral with black gel liner. The lips are my lips but better color. She doesn't say what blush she is wearing. For blush I wanted something neutral, so I chose to wear Rimmel Lasting Finish in 002 Mauve Cool. Don't forget to wear mascara!

Look 2
a. MAC Painterly Paint Pot, lashes to brow: Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in Continuous Almond
b. Brown Eye Liner, upper lash line, make it thicker as you go to the edge of the eye
c. Smudge it out.
d. Roulette, lid, go on top of liner: Wet 'n Wild Knock on Wood, eyelid color
e. Desert Sands, crease: Elf Beauty Clutch, 2nd row, 3rd color
f. Mirage, under browbone: Wet 'n Wild Fergie Centerstage Collection Photo OP Eyeshadow in Newport Nights, top left
g. Casino, inner corner: LA Colors Eye Shadows in Sunflower, left color
h. Bada Bing, upper lash line on top of brown eye liner: Wet 'n Wild Naked Truth, Definer shade
i. Brown Eye Liner, outer half of lower lash line
j. Black Gel Liner, use an eye pencil, tight line, outer half of waterline
k. Estee Lauder Lipstick in #120 Desirable: Revlon Pink Pout
My Thoughts: This is a cranberry, gold look with black gel eye liner. It reminds me of a smoky eye for the fall. The lips are a nudey pink. She doesn't say what blush to use, but again I used Rimmel Lasting Finish in 002 Mauve Cool.

Look 3
a. Casino, inner corner, upper lash line, see video: LA Colors Eye Shadows in Sunflower, left color
b. Tape sides of eye.
c. Bada Bing, go against tape, don't go past the crease, upper lash line: Wet 'n Wild Naked Truth, Definer shade
d. Roulette, outer part of the crease: Wet 'n Wild Knock on Wood, eyelid color
e. Mirage, above Roulette to blend it out: Wet 'n Wild Fergie Centerstage Collection Photo OP Eyeshadow in Newport Nights, top left
f. Makeup Geek Pigment in Nightlife, center of lid, blend into the gold and the brown: L'Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow in Amber Rush
g. Bada Bing, sweep it inwards a little bit
h. Black Gel Liner, upper lash line, wing
i. Take off tape.
j. Nude Eye Liner, waterline
k. NARS Lipstick in Liv, use a brush: Milani Cabernet Blend
My Thoughts: I'm still working on doing the wing liner. It isn't even, which drives me crazy. She said this is a fall look. It looks like fall to me with cranberry lips and fall colored eyes. It is a brand new way for me to do my eyes. It is pretty cool. You should watch the video as you do this look. I'm going to use Mauve Cool again as my blush.
